I Spended Way Too Much Money Today

Why do I spend so much energy shopping for vintage in thrift shops (and sidewalks)? I am dedicated to the idea of recycling and upcycling as a way to reduce waste and I am almost always broke. But it’s been a good couple of months for freelancing and today I decided to reward myself with something new. Something shoes.

I’ve been admiring these F-Troupe shoesies in the window of Robber for a couple of weeks now. I rationalized the purchase by telling myself the last time I spent so much money on footwear (my Camper boots), I got a good 10 years of wear from them. I did not tell myself that the last time I bought crepe soled wedgies that I only wore them four times.
